Classic Black Factory Clock Arabic Numerals
The Classic Black Factory Clock with Arabic Numerals is a faithful recreation of clocks that would have hung on the walls in factories across Britain in the early 20th century. These Synchronome clocks would have been a common sight as workers looked up waiting for break time or knocking off time. This handmade metal timepiece, with brushed aluminium bezel, makes a splendid black wall clock that would fit just as beautifully in a kitchen as it would in a living room.
Synchronome were one of the classic British clock manufacturers. Founded in 1895, they unfortunately ceased trading many years ago. They supplied the BBC, The London Underground, Cunard, Liberty's and The Times. But in 2021 Mark Hope-Jones the founder's great-great-great-nephew resurrected the classic British brand. These meticulously crafted recreations have the same all-metal construction and vintage industrial feel, but feature a stand-alone quartz movement.
Each Classic Black Factory Clock with Arabic Numerals is individually built to order by hand and as such is delivered from the brand themselves. Each black metal wall clock has its own
distinguishing features, arising out of the artisanal nature of the components. A real piece of modern heritage.
